Beginning Monday, June 14, 2021, the MSU Veterinary Medical Center will allow clients into the building with patients. Find details here.

Any patient presented to the MSU Small Animal Emergency Service will undergo an initial medical evaluation to determine if urgent care is needed, and whether hospitalization is warranted. The MSU Small Animal Emergency Service will only hospitalize patients that our clinicians consider to be unstable or to have life-threatening conditions.

On September 28, the MSU College of Veterinary Medicine hosted its annual Celebration of Generosity event. One highlight of the evening was the presentation of the College’s Philanthropist of the Year Award; Jim and Barb Edgett were honored for their generosity and support of the College. They established the Daisy Edgett Ophthalmology Room in the MSU Veterinary Medical Center’s Small Animal Clinic. Dr. Simon Petersen-Jones, Myers-Dunlap Endowed Chair in Canine Health for the Department of Small Animal Clinical Sciences and section chief for the Comparative Ophthalmology Service, explained that because of this gift, MSU has one of the best-equipped veterinary ophthalmology services in the country.

During the evening’s program, Associate Dean Julie Funk spoke briefly about the College’s curriculum reinvention and what that means for the College and future students. Dean John Baker also gave an overall update on the College and thanked those in attendance for their generosity.
